55-Year-Old Navy Veteran Takes On Challenge to Break Most Pull-Ups in 24 Hours

Rodney Hahn will attempt a world record of more than 7,000 pull-ups.

All proceeds will benefit The Navy SEAL Foundation. #7000ForTheSEALS


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Rodney Hahn is out to set the Guinness World Record for pull-ups on Memorial Day Weekend. The event, sponsored by The Dump Furniture Outlet, will occur at their Chicagoland location  (Lombard,IL) and will simulcast the event live to all Dump locations nationwide, as well as livestreaming on YouTube and Facebook. Hahn plans to complete over 7,000 pull-ups in 24 hours from 3 pm Sunday, May 29th till 3 pm Monday, May 30th. Guinness World Record judge Michael Empric will be onsite to verify Hahn’s attempt.

WHO: A former Navy service member on the USS John F. Kennedy, Hahn received his degree in sports medicine from Old Dominion University, and he holds certifications from Titleist Performance Institute  and the American College of Sports Medicine. Hahn is the Fitness Director at The Cavalier est. 1928, the leading golf & yacht club in Virginia Beach, VA. Hahn has been an innovator in physical training for 19 years and his dream is to become a competitor on American Ninja Warrior .

“At my age, few can people push their bodies to this limit,” said Hahn. “When I’m older I don’t want to look back and regret not going for something that I knew I was physically capable of.”

WHAT: The Navy SEAL Foundation will be the beneficiary of fundraising by The Dump and America’s leading furniture manufacturers. During the event, The Dump hopes to receive donations at all of its locations. Any individual who donates will be eligible to win from $20,000 of hourly giveaways including Tempur-Pedic and Aireloom mattresses, Karastan rugs and Natuzzi leather sofas. If individuals cannot attend, please considering donating online now at www.gofundme.com/7000ForTheSeals . The Dump hopes to raise at least $25,000 for the SEALS.

“As a company founded and headquartered in a military community (Norfolk/VA Beach), Memorial Day has great meaning to our associates and customers,” said EJ Strelitz, founder of The Dump. “We are thrilled to support both Rodney – a Navy Vet – in the pursuit of his dream and the Navy SEAL Foundation in their mission to serve our nations heroes.”
